Construction
continues
Work on Grove Avenue
continues as crews pre-
pare the road from Main
Street to Highway 7 for
surfacing. From Gehlen
Drive to Main Street, the
driving surface is ce-
mented, and crews con-
tinue to build the sidewalk
and curb and gutter por-
tions of the project. As
crews work on the north
section of the project,
Highway 7 is outfitted with
constructon signs and
cones, and at the intersec-
tion of Grove and Highway
7, traffic is redirected
through the middle turning
lanes.

On Monday night, the Glen-
coe-Silver Lake School Board
approved the lease purchase
financing for its Early Child-
hood center addition that cur-
rently is being constructed.
The lease purchase financ-
ing is for $1.375 million and
was awarded to Capital One
Public Funding for a fixed rate
of 3.15 percent for 10 years.
Capital One was one of
three bids for the financing.
The others were Security Bank
& Trust (3.50 percent) and Ki-
netic Leasing (3.64 percent).
Over the life of the lease,
the district will pay just over
$1.608 million.
The lease purchase funds
would be repaid in two pay-
ments totaling nearly $80,000
a year.
The total project will cost
just under $1.97 million, of
which the district has con-
tributed $591,909 from other
district funds.
The School Board also au-
thorized the execution of the
lease agreement.
In other matters, the School
Board:
• Approved a resolution of
support for the city of Glen-
coe’s 10-year extension of its
tax increment finance (TIF)
District No. 4, the old indus-
trial park.
Glencoe Mayor Randy Wil-
son said special legislation
was approved last session to
allow the city to extend the life
of TIF No. 4 until 2023.
He said that will allow the
tax increments generated from
that district to help fund bonds
issued on two other TIFs —
for the downtown redevelop-
ment and the new industrial
park.
Wilson said the city had 16
TIF districts over the years,
but 12 have been decertified
and no longer exist.
Of the remaining four, the
city knows when two of them
will expire — Grand Mead-
ows and Coborn’s — but the
ones for the industrial park are
a bit more uncertain, depend-
ing on how soon development
occurs, Wilson said.
When the downtown and
new industrial park TIFs begin
to cash flow, TIF No. 4 will be
decertified, Wilson said.
Once decertified, the prop-
erty taxes would then again be
split among the city, county
and school district.

Surfacing
begins on
Grove Ave.
By Alyssa Schauer
Staff Writer
And the construction contin-
ues along Grove Avenue in Sil-
ver Lake.
Last week, the driving sur-
face of concrete was placed
from just north of Gehlen
Drive to Main Street.
Currently, the intersections
at Merrill Street and Cleveland
Street along Grove Avenue are
closed; however, Main Street
will remain open.
Al Hahn, resident project
representative, said the con-
crete needs time to cure, and
that “though it may look pass-
able, even walking on it may
damage the surface.”
Hahn said a curing com-
pound is placed on the surface
to “cure it evenly” and that it
is “a white compound that may
look like the street is dry.”
He said it takes seven to 10
days for the concrete to fully
dry.
On the section of Grove Av-
enue from Main Street to
Highway 7, R&R Excavating
is working on preparing the
street surface and will then in-
stall the street tile, sump pump
tile, and fabric, followed by
sand and gravel.
****
In related news, work on
County State Aid Highway 2
(CSAH 2) south of Silver Lake
has begun to prepare for resur-
facing.
This also will be surfaced
with concrete and crews are set
to start pouring sometime this
week.
The road continues to be
closed to traffic and detours
are posted.

It’s the middle of August
and we are just about ready to
start school. This past week,
many of our students have
been around the school with
the start of the fall season.
Things are getting pretty excit-
ing.
While there is still much
preparatory work yet to be
done before the official start to
the new year, you can see
many improvements and proj-
ects that are under way.
A special thank you goes
out to our custodial staff for
their hard work and dedication
over the summer.
It seems summers go by
faster and faster each year, and
this year was no exception so,
with that said, enjoy the last
few weeks as school will be
here before you know it.
This week, much of our
staff will be taking part in our
technology “boot camp” and
learning more about how to in-
corporate technology into their
classrooms.
This year, we have ex-
panded the iPads to fifth and
sixth grades, as well as giving
all teaching staff an iPad to use
in their classrooms. GSL is
embracing technology and
making the most of the re-
sources that we have.
Thank you to Jeff Jenson,
Mike Morris and Kara Damm
for all of their hard work this
summer making improve-
ments in the world of technol-
ogy.
Last Friday was the GSL
Panther Association’s golf
tournament. I want to take this
opportunity to thank all the
people involved in making this
event a success. Without the
vendors, sponsors and the par-
ticipants, this day would have
not been as good as it was. On
behalf of the GSL Panther As-
sociation, thank you once
again.
We are moving forward on
our Early Childhood Learning
Center. With each day, you can
see the progress. It will be an
awesome facility for our
youngest learners, and we are
looking forward to occupying
the addition in late December.
A couple of dates to keep in
mind as we get closer to the
start of school: Aug. 28, from
3 p.m. to 6 p.m., we will be
having our annual open house
for all students and parents.
We look forward to seeing all
the kids as we get ready for the
1st day of school.
At 6 p.m. on Aug. 28, the
GSL Booster Club’s commu-
nity pepfest will be held on the
parking lot of the Glencoe
City Center with the program
starting at 6:30 p.m. There will
be lots of events going on to
help kick off the new school
year. We hope to see you there.
Until next time, enjoy the
last few weeks of summer and
here’s to a great 2013-14
school year.

Sometimes in life you have
to experience hardship to learn
lessons, such as running out of
gas on Highway 7 to find your
fuel gauge is a bit off after a
recent repair.
Yes, believe it or not, I have
another Jeep story!
Each week, I think “What
are you going to write about
this week?” My procrastinator
self gets a little stressed figur-
ing out what would make a
good story.
I try to recollect special
memories with family, like
watching a meteor shower
with my brother at 2 a.m. in
the bitter cold January of Wis-
consin, bundled up in fleece
pajamas, winter coats and
blankets on lawn chairs, or I
think about sharing more ex-
citing travel adventures, like
snorkeling with stingrays in
Belize.
But it’s as if the Jeep can
feel my stress level increase
and it decides to act up, just so
I will have something to write
about. Again.
So last Sunday, I was
headed to Dassel to celebrate
the birthdays of two of my
cousins when not even a mile
from my apartment, my Jeep
starts chug-a-lugging and I
barely roll over busy Highway
7 before it dies in Roger Mal-
lak’s excavating yard.
At this point, my gas gauge
was on a quarter tank, and my
Jeep was chugging along like
it had when my fuel pump was
acting up. So, of course, I
thought it was something
wrong with that again, as I re-
cently had it repaired.
I cried out, “Seriously!” and
shed a few tears before calling
Dad, who is always my first
phone call when something
goes mechanically wrong.
(Then Grandma Genny is my
second call when I need a
ride.)
Luckily for me, Dad and
Mom were in town for a wed-
ding, and were waiting for me
at the birthday party in Dassel
when I called with the annoy-
ing news of a stalled Jeep.
“Are you serious?” was his
first reply before he thought
about the problem.
Then he said Uncle Jeff
(who also was at the party and
is our family mechanic)
thought the fuel gauge might
be off since the pump was just
repaired and that he, Mom,
and brother Nick would be
about 45 minutes to an hour
before coming to my rescue.
The plan was for me to
leave my vehicle, and I was to
walk to my apartment and wait
for them to bring a few gallons
of gas.
Well, since I was parked di-
rectly in Roger’s driveway and
couldn’t move the Jeep, I
called him to let him know
what happened so that I
wouldn’t be towed.
Of course, he drove right
over to check out the problem,
and as I started to turn the key
for him to get a second opin-
ion, he said, “I think you’re
outta gas! Let me see. I might
have a few gallons around
here.”
He found a five-gallon jug
and started to fill up the old
Jeep. But after a few turns of
the key and a couple pumps on
the gas pedal, the Jeep still
wouldn’t start.
Uff da.
We popped the hood to
check out the “guts” of the
Jeep, and Roger called up his
friend Jim Zeik, who knows a
thing or two about cars, and
who also happens to be a good
friend of my Dad’s. And we
waited for him and Mom and
Dad.
So there we sat, talking
about old cars and relatives,
and he even took me to his
shed to meet a new batch of
kittens!
It was an exciting distrac-
tion to see the blue-eyed fur-
balls and hear their scratchy
meows. And I was thankful to
Roger for cheering me up de-
spite all the recent vehicle
trouble I’ve been having.
Soon after, Jim pulled up to
the yard with his friend Matt.
They checked the fuel line and
turned the key several times,
and even found a rubber mal-
let to pound the gas tank (an
old trick). Before I knew it, the
Jeep fired up and was grum-
bling again!
Most of you would probably
agree it’s time to look for
something new(er), but I must
say how much I love the Jeep
for bringing people together.
It was a fun reunion when
Mom, Dad and Nick arrived,
and we sat and chatted with
Jim and Roger and joked
about getting another 100,000
miles out of the Jeep. (Hey, it
could happen, you know.)
Although I was in tears for
a short time, I am incredibly
thankful that I live in Silver
Lake, where everybody is
willing to help a girl out. And
I’m thankful for all who have
“met” the Jeep and helped us
on our way.

The Glencoe-Silver Lake
School Board on Monday
night awarded the bid to repair
of the outdoor track at Stevens
Seminary Field for $124,660.
There was only one bidder,
Midwest Tennis and Track of
Denison, Iowa.
Michelle Sander, GSL busi-
ness manager, said four con-
tractors asked for
specifications, but only one
bid.
The work is scheduled to be
completed this fall, and
Sander said that tight timeline
may have been a factor in so
few bids.
Sander said the resurfacing
work will take about a week,
and will be done sometime in
September or October.
The problem is finding a
week in which no fall activi-
ties are planned for the sta-
dium in order to keep people
off the track while the work is
being completed.
“We need a good week of
weather to get it done,” Sander
added.
The project will include
milling off the current surface,
repairing any cracks and pour-
ing on the new all-weather
surface.
She said soil borings indi-
cated the base for the track
was in good shape.
The track was determined
unsafe to use last spring and
no events were held on it,
Sander said.
The life expectancy of the
track was 10 years, Sander
said, and the track is actually
13 or 14 years old.
“Considering Minnesota
winters. It’s just old,” she
added.
Sander said the funds to do
the project are in the district’s
deferred maintenance budget.

Two Glencoe-Silver Lake
students — one a 2011 gradu-
ate and the other a future grad-
uate — spoke to the School
Board Monday night about
programs at the school.
Adam Broderius, a student
at the University of Min-
nesota-Duluth, returned and
spoke about how his high
school classes helped prepared
him for his classes at UMD in
his major field of engineering.
Kirsten Barott, a sopho-
more, spoke about the new
program at GSL, the FFA gar-
den project, that produced its
first fruits of labor at a recent
farmers market.
*****
Broderius thanked the board
and staff for the course offer-
ings at GSL that helped him
prepare him for his field of
study.
He said GSL’s math and sci-
ence curriculums were all
good. The science classes, he
said, gave him a strong back-
ground heading off to college.
Broderius was actively in-
volved in science fair projects
for years that won him state
and national awards.
The GSL science programs
also “did a good job with lab
workbooks,” Broderius said,
something he said he uses a lot
in college.
A physics background from
high school also was useful,
and the great things offered at
GSL were the math — calcu-
lus and trigonometry —
courses.
Broderius said he thought
he would never use the
trigonometry courses again,
but “I use them every single
day of my life now.”
He also said the senior writ-
ing class taught him good
writing techniques that he uses
constantly in college as well.
One thing he was not pre-
pared for, Broderius said, was
the large lecture halls with
hundreds of students. “I was
overwhelmed.”
But he said that was good
because facing something new
forced him to “figure it out.”
Broderius said the district’s
current offerings of the robot-
ics class and supermileage ve-
hicle program are great, and
he wished they had been of-
fered when he was in high
school.
Board member Anne Twiss
said she was glad Broderius
came back and offered some
feedback on his high school
classes and how they impacted
his college studies.
“It is rare for someone to
come back and tell us,” Twiss
said.
She asked what Broderius
remembers from his elemen-
tary school days at Helen
Baker.
“I remember music class,”
Broderius said. He said that
was very helpful for him in
getting over his shyness.
Board member Jamie Al-
sleben added that it is benefi-
cial to the School Board to
have input from alumni, and
he hoped some more of them
would take the opportunity to
come back and talk in the
classrooms, too.
He said hearing from peers
about the courses and options
at GSL helps current students
in seeing how classes being
taken now “will benefit them
in their new careers.”
*****
Barott said the first year of
the FFA garden program is
starting to produce results. She
said FFA members took some
of the produce to the Glencoe
Farmers Market, and sold out
in minutes.
“That was pretty exciting,”
she told the School Board.
Superintendent Chris Sonju
said the “kids were beaming
with pride,” when they told
him of the sales.
He praised them for their
hard work and success, and
added this is another example
“of all the good things happen-
ing at GSL.”
Barott said the money raised
from the FFA garden will go
back into the FFA chapter. The
chapter also will be doing
other fundraisers in the up-
coming school year to raise
money to attend the national
FFA convention.

3 athletes hurt by two-car crash
Three Chanhassen High
School cross country runners
were injured during an acci-
dent at 9:38 a.m., Monday, at
the intersection of Audubon
Road and Lake Drive West in
Chanhassen.
According to Carver County
Sheriff Jim Olson, deputies re-
sponded to the intersection on
a report of a vehicle versus
pedestrian personal injury ac-
cident.
A box truck was southbound
on Audubon Road and in the
process of making a left turn
onto eastbound Lake Drive
West when it collided with a
car that was northbound on
Audubon Road.
At the time there was a
group of students and two
teachers from the Chanhassen
High School cross country
team that were on the sidewalk
near the intersection.
The vehicle accident caused
the car to leave the roadway
and strike three of the students.
They are a 16-year-old girl
from Carver, a 16-year-old girl
from Victoria, and a 16-year-
old boy from Chanhassen.
The boy was treated at the
scene for superficial injuries.
The two girls were transported
to an emergency room by am-
bulance with non-life threaten-
ing injuries.
Chanhassen Fire Rescue and
Ridgeview paramedics as-
sisted at the scene. A Min-
nesota State Patrol commercial
vehicle inspector assisted with
the investigation.

It’s not apparent whether the
Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’
soccer team is a fan of Three
Dog Night, but it can attest
that one is the loneliest num-
ber after a 1-14-3 2012 season.
With another new coach at
the helm, this year’s team
looks to turn some of those ties
into victories.
Jeff Shults takes over for
Cullen Kerslake, who coached
soccer for the first time last
season.
Shults was the head coach
of the boys’ soccer team in
Watertown-Mayer the past
three years.
In his last season with the
Royals, Shults’ team compiled
an 11-12 overall record, and
lost to Orono in the playoffs.
Previous to that he was an
assistant coach at Jamestown
College in North Dakota, and
head coach at Holy Family
Catholic High School for eight
years.
Shults said he likes to play a
“counter attacking style” but is
flexible when it comes to dif-
ferent situations within the
game.
The Panthers will have to
pick up on that if they want to
do better than last year’s team,
which Shults said was still a
good team regardless of the
record.
“I think it was still a well-or-
ganized team, and a strong
team,” Shults said. “So this
year we will make sure we’re
still strong and competitive,
and we’ll try to win some
games.”
As far as wins and losses go,
the head coach said he is more
concerned with learning about
his players.
“I have no expectations,”
Shults said. “I just expect to
have a good season, and for
everyone to enjoy participa-
tion in the program.”
The Panthers have a large
number of sophomores mak-
ing up this team, which Shults
said is good for rebuilding.
While he has no expecta-
tions, Shults said the keys to a
successful season will come
from teamwork.
“If we play as a team — if I
manage to create on the field
the organization and attitude
that I would like to see, that
will be a success,” he said. “If
the players enjoy the participa-
tion and learn, and continue to
develope individually, it’ll be
a success. And if we win more
than one game, that will be a
success as well.”
Gustavo Villalobos thinks
“this should be a good year,”
and that the Panthers could
possibly finish as high as
fourth place in the conference.
He also reiterated his head
coach’s view that any success
this season will be earned
through teamwork.
“We need to play as a team
and pass and talk to each other,
and just have a good time
playing,” Villalobos said.
Another factor for success
will be fresh bodies on the
field.
“We usually had just the
right amount (of players) on
varsity, so we had some JV
players substituting for us, and
we would get tired,” he said.
“Other teams had like five
subs, and subbed every five
minutes, so it was kind of
hard. This year we’re hoping
to get more players and play
full games without getting
tired.”
Villalobos said a lot of last
year’s losses can be attributed
to fatigue from not enough
substitutes.
“It was pretty much every
second half that they beat us,”
he said. “After we got tired,
we only had two subs, and we
had to wait for JV to finish so
they could come and sub for
us.”
This year’s team begins
competition with a scrimmage
at Fairmont on Saturday. The
regular season begins at home
against Worthington on Aug.

GSL Panther
Fall Sports
By Josh Randt
Sports Editor
Last year’s Glencoe-Silver
Lake varsity tennis team sur-
prised head coach Robb
DeCorsey by putting them-
selves in a position to be the
No. 1 team in the section.
“If you would have told me
that at the beginning of the
season last year, I probably
would have broke out hyster-
ically and laughed in your
face,” DeCorsey said.
A big win over Annandale,
who was the top team in the
section, gave the Panthers
confidence moving forward.
“Then we hit a little rode
block and kind of fell off a lit-
tle bit,” DeCorsey said.
Seeded second in the sec-
tion, the Panthers defeated
MACCRAY 5-2 in the open-
ing round of team sections.
But GSL lost to Providence
7-0 in the semi-final round,
ending the team’s unexpected
season.
The main loss from gradu-
ation is Mikaeyla Boesche
and Kelly Beneke. Boesche
was a four-time letter winner
who played doubles with
Kelly Arnold, now a senior.
The duo earned all confer-
ence awards and made it to
the state tournament, but
eventually lost outside of the
medal rounds.
Arnold now enters her fifth
season of varsity play and has
her sights set on the state tour-
nament for singles.
“I expect a lot from Kelly,”
DeCorsey said. “She’s been a
big part of what we’ve had
going on the last four years.
She’s going to have to step
up. She’s a little bit out there
on her own, but it’s going to
be a lot of learning.”
As far as team aspirations,
Arnold simply said, “make it
back to sections and beat
Providence.”
Fellow senior Laura Becker
said that this year’s young
team can overachieve, much
like last year’s team did.
“We were kind of a young
team last year and we did
pretty well, and we showed
our stuff,” Becker said.
“Hopefully, this year, we im-
prove a little bit better and
beat a lot of the teams we
should have beat last year.”
Adding to that, Becker said
as a team, the goal is to make
it to state this year, but
DeCorsey emphasized daily
improvements, and consis-
tency.
“We need to come here and
try to improve every single
day,” DeCorsey said. “Last
year, being first-time varsity
players, we had some girls
moving around a little bit
more. Hopefully, this year,
those girls will be able to step
up with some consistency and
hold spots.”
The Panthers have a scrim-
mage at Shakopee on Satur-
day, before hosting a
quadrangular on Tuesday at 9
a.m.

New coach
new season
Jeff Shults
By Josh Randt
Sports Editor
It’s a major rebuilding year
for the Glencoe-Silver Lake
girls’ soccer team that finished
3-13 last season.
Losing 10 of 11 varsity
starters to graduation, and a
couple that moved out of the
area, this year’s team is “pretty
much starting over and re-
building,” head coach Zach
Otto-Fisher said.
“We knew that was going to
happen,” Otto-Fisher said, but
that does not make the transi-
tion any easier. Especially con-
sidering 17 of 19 goals were
scored by those 10 players.
A highlight from the 2012
team was the first conference
win in five years, with a 3-0
victory against Hutchinson.
Senior Kaitlyn Cohrs scored
two goals in that game, but is
one of the 10 players lost to
graduation.
“It’s going to be tough, but
at the same time it’s going to
be exciting for these girls,”
Otto-Fisher said. “They know
for two or three years they
have to rebuild this program.”
What the team lacks in ex-
perience is made up for in
numbers.
The Panthers have about 30
girls on the team, with the ma-
jority coming from seventh,
eighth and ninth grades.
“We’re very young,” Otto-
Fisher said. “We’ll have one
senior on the team, two juniors
and the rest from there are un-
derclassmen.”
Wins are always welcome,
but the head coach stressed
that this season is more about
building a program for the fu-
ture.
“This is my third year here
and we’re still trying to build
the program,” Otto-Fisher
said. “Right now, I’m at a
point where we need to build
our numbers. Every year we’re
getting more and more girls
out, and I think that’s how
we’re building the program.”
One girl the team will rely
on is Yodee Rivera, the lone
senior on this team, and all-
conference honorable mention
from a year ago.
“She’s just a talented, very
mature leader on our team,”
Otto-Fisher said. “She was the
captain last year, so we’re hop-
ing she steps up.”
After that, the team looks to
the youth for some help.
“This is going to be a whole
new year; everything is going
to be different,” junior Keisha
Prafke said. “We’re expecting
a lot to come from it.”
Prafke said that although the
team lost a lot of people to
graduation, this year’s team
can still accomplish a lot.
“I think we’re going to do
well this year,” Prafke said.
“Right now we’re doing well
with conditioning, and the
teamwork is doing great. It’s
phenomenal.”
“I think we can finish higher
than last year, too,” sophomore
Maddie Kuehn said. “If we re-
ally work at it.”
The Panthers will look to
build a team for the future, and
an integral part of that will be
eighth-grade goalie, Zoe
Christensen.
“We’re kind of building a
team around a goalie, and you
need a good goalie,” Otto-
Fisher said. “She’s going to be
the one for the next five years,
hopefully.”
The Panthers have a scrim-
mage at Fairmont on Saturday,
and open up the regular season
on Thursday, Aug. 22 at Will-
mar.

GRANDSTAND – Xtreme Demo Derby – 5 PM
For Latest Updates, Go To: www.McLeodCountyFair.com *TIMES AND EVENTS SUBJECT TO CHANGE
If you are a fan of the weather doing what it should, this
is the forecast for you. Normal mid-August weather will
dominate the Upper Midwest as a high-pressure ridge
inches in from the west. Highs mid-week into the weekend
won’t move a whole lot ranging from mid 70s to lower 80s
the entire forecast period.
There is a little disagreement about some moisture mov-
ing in late week into the weekend, but I’m thinking we’ll
dodge most of the wet stuff. In other words, I would not
change weekend plans as there shouldn’t be any all-day
washouts.
The best chance for rain would be scattered showers or
thunder late Friday into Saturday and again possibly late
Saturday into Sunday (but like I said, don’t change any
plans).
Taking a peek at the extended shows normal weather lin-
gering into next week as the high-pressure ridge is slow to
move.
Have a great August week, all; enjoy the nice fair
weather!
Ma dobry weekendem Mit dobry vikend
Wednesday night — Lows 52-58, clear.
Thursday — Highs 75-81; lows 57-63; mostly clear.
Friday — Highs 76-82; lows 58-64; partly cloudy.
Saturday — Highs 78-84; lows 58-64; mostly clear/late
scattered thunder?
Sunday – Highs 78-84; mostly clear.
Weather Quiz: Heck, why not ask it early this year…
when will we see our first snowflakes this fall/winter?
Answer to last week’s question: When did people first
start studying “weather?” It was first discussed by Aris-
totle around 340 B.C. During the 17th and 18th centuries,
with the advent of thermometers and barometers, things
heated up and by the 19th century readings were being
shared from place to place via telegraph to better under-
stand what might be heading people’s direction. Modern
meteorology started taking shape around World War II and
the first meteorological satellites were launched in the ’60s.
The rest, as they say, is history.
Remember: I make the forecast, not the weather!

Historical society makes financial appeal to County Board
By Lori Copler
Staff Writer
The McLeod County Histor-
ical Society is asking for a
$9,898 boost in funding from
McLeod County, a topic that
County Commissioner Shel-
don Nies said will be taken up
by the county’s budget com-
mittee.
Lori Pickell-Stangel, the ex-
ecutive director of the histori-
cal society, told the County
Board at its Aug. 6 meeting
that the county’s contribution
for the society has remained
the same for several years, and
trails in comparison with that
of other counties.
Pickell-Stangel, in answer to
a question from Commissioner
Ron Shimanski, acknowledged
that the historical society does
receive grants from the state’s
Legacy fund, but those grants
are targeted for specific pro-
grams.
“I can’t use that money for
lights and heat,” said Pickell-
Stangel, who said that opera-
tional costs, such as utilities,
continue to increase each year.
Pickell-Stangel said that
McLeod County gives the his-
torical society just over
$39,300 a year, which equates
to about $1.08 per resident.
According to Pickell-Stangel,
Brown County allots about
$82,380 to its historical soci-
ety, or about $3.20 per resi-
dent; Renville County,
$53,100, or about $3.40 per
person; and Kandiyohi County
about $55,100, or $1.31 per
person.
Pickell-Stangel said that
most of the nearly $9,000 in-
crease the McLeod County
Historical Society is seeking
will go toward paying for in-
formation technology.
Pickell-Stangel said that one
of the society’s main goals is
to improve its website so that
citizens can do online research
of the county’s and their fami-
lies’ histories.
“Like you, we want to serve
our clients in the most efficient
way possible,” said Pickell-
Stangel. And those clients are
seeking ease in online re-
search, she added.
Pickell-Stangel said that she
could seek grant funding for
computers, hardware and soft-
ware, but the ongoing cost of
maintaining and updating the
website would be the responsi-
bility of the society, which is
considering hiring a part-time
information technology per-
son.
Nies said he isn’t opposed to
the increased contribution re-
quest, but that it would have to
go through channels before the
County Board approved it, in-
cluding consideration by the
budget committee.
In other business, Highway
Engineer John Brunkhorst pre-
sented quotes on the prime and
seal coat of County Road 54
(Tagus Avenue) to create a
hard surface on the road for a
segment from County Road 87
to North Sunset Circle, on the
west side of Lake Marion.
County officials had met
with residents in that area this
spring after the road, which is
heavily traveled by lake-area
residents, washboarded and
had other issues because of the
heavy spring rains.
Brunkhorst said the county
had received just one quote,
from Pearson Bros., Inc., at a
total of $75,561.42 for the one-
mile segment, or about $4.02
per square yard. A similar proj-
ect done in Wright County cost
about $2.85 per square yard,
Brunkhorst noted.
Brunkhorst said the county
sought quotes late in the sea-
son, when most contractors al-
ready had work lined up,
which could account for the
lack of interest and the higher
than anticipated cost, which
the engineers had thought
would be about $35,000.
Brunkhorst suggested that
the county postpone the proj-
ect a year, and bid it out with
its annual seal-coating work.
“I think we’d see some bet-
ter bids,” said Brunkhorst.
Brunkhorst said the prime-
and-seal coat method was rel-
atively new technology and, if
the county saw good results on
Tagus Avenue, it could con-
sider it as a way to hard-top
other highly traveled gravel
roads, as well as the service
roads in the county’s two
campgrounds.
The County Board also:
• Agreed to buy a new copier
for the county attorney’s office
in the amount of $12,847.
• Agreed to put a former
group home it owns, located at
440 Grove St., Hutchinson, up
for sale through a sealed bid
process, with a minimum bid
of $25,000. The house is no
longer used for a group home
and is currently unoccupied.
• Agreed to a request from
the city of Glencoe to support
the extension the duration of
tax increment financing dis-
trict No. 4 in the city of Glen-
coe.
